Day 10 - A fic for your favorite Movie pairing.

Fandom Category: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann/William Turner
Fic Title: By the String of Choices Made
Author: [livejournal.com profile] reimars
Link: By the String of Choices Made
Rating/Warning(s): I'd say pg-13. Spoilers for AWE.
Genre: Drama, speculation.
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Sometimes it's impossible to separate a curse from a boon.

One of several excellent fanfics dealing with AWE and its aftermath. I particularly love this one because it doesn't gloss over Elizabeth and all that time waiting, while still show-casing her extraordinary strength. Jack's appearance (and his pitch-perfect voice) is another plus, because this author's grasp of dialogue is extraordinary.

Fandom Category: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann/William Turner
Fic Title: Decade
Author: Sera dy Relandrant
Link: Decade
Rating/Warning(s): PG. AWE spoilers, I suppose.
Genre: Family, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: “Keep a weather eye on the horizon.” Elizabeth and Liam visit the isle, foam white waves lashing against shell studded white sand, every year. For ten years. "She looks down at Liam and sees her Paradise. She looks out at Will and sees her Heaven."

Well the author's prose is a very good reason. There's something smooth but rich and full of imagery in the way she crafts her sentences. The story is told in short snap-shots, one per year, but somehow it captures the epic range of emotions and plots and adventures of PotC, while still giving it so much heart.

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 16/100

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] salr323 is one of the best writers around, and her Jack/Elizabeth fics are especially superb. With effective writing, pitch-perfect dialogue, moving character developments, and lovely historical insights, [livejournal.com profile] salr323 takes the end of At World's End and shows how Jack and Elizabeth's story's might have continued on. This is a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy, and one that I know a lot of Jack/Elizabeth fans probably hoped for.

Fic Title: Curse of the White Sword
Author: Jocelyn
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1479582/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, a little R-ish for descriptions of natural disasters
Genre: Adventure, drama, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Written before Dead Man's Chest aired, this is probably one of the best PoTC fics written. I'm fairly sure I rec'ed this one some time ago, but it's so amazing that it deserves a spot on my list of special recs. The romance, the adventure, it's all so incredible! The characters are spot on, and I love how they develop, most especially Will and Elizabeth. Elizabeth is tough from the start, and only grows even more so as she refuses to bow to the pressures of her father and society, and is determined to have what she wants in life. Will does quite a bit of growing up in this fic, and that's what makes him so interesting. He learns that running away won't solve his problems, and also gains some insight to his own past. Also, the secondary pairing of Commodore Norrington and an OFC is excellent too. This fate for the Commodore is far more to my taste than the one he was dealt in the two sequels of CotBP. An outstanding fic.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: general, romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This is a great fic. It takes the characters through their final hours before they are reunited after their 10 years apart, and their first night together. The story also introduces some new characters and revisits some old ones(giving them a proper goodbye.)

Part II: http://the-dala.livejournal.com/162488.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: "L-O-N-G. Not epic, but no ficlet either."
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Set post-CotBP (but written before DMC), “Adaptation” finds a marooned Norrington rescued—-by the Black Pearl. The crew of which now includes Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann.

James may have preferred to remain shipwrecked.

In [livejournal.com profile] the_dala’s carefully constructed story structure, moments that seem like throwaway lines earlier in the fic come back as major plot points later. Her Elizabeth is flawed yet passionate and determined; and her James slowly but believably adapts to life aboard the Pearl, as he eventually discovers what he wants out of life isn’t necessarily what he needs.

And, um, the porn is hot, too.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: One scenario for a post-AWE world plays out, in gorgeous detail and one of the most authentic Jack Sparrow voices I have ever seen without Johnny Depp actually involved.  Will and Elizabeth come together as naturally and in-character as they should, and they find a way to be together for the long run that is as perfect as it is simply obvious.

Why This Must Be Read:
Because the original PotC movie was so, so, so stellar and its two sequels were so, so, so not (I haven't made up my mind about my hopes for the upcoming installment), this is a fandom in much need of some kickass fanon.  This is that.

Author: The Dork of York, on ff.net

Rating/Warning(s): M, violence (a fair amount towards women), language, sexual situations
Genre: Drama, action/adventure, romance, angst, supernatural
WIP?: No - EPIC
Special rec: 11/31
Author’s Summary: Stella Bell was a witch and a bastard, striving for gentility on Tortuga. James Norrington was an angry drunkard desirous of revenge. Both were bitter as bile, and certainly didn't expect to be friends. Funny ol' world, innit?

Why This Must Be Read: I love James Norrington. I am still mad over his fate. Very mad. This fic has soothed my anger. It is well-written, extremely well-researched (the author has definitely put time and thought into everything), funny, all the canon characters are perfectly portrayed and it is a very satisfying epic read. Now. I know people have issues with OFCs. Stella is how it should be done. She is flawed and she is capable, smart and (once again) well-written. Do give this a chance.

You also get some very believable back-story on everyone which is always fun. It might be a little harsh on some of the canon characters, but imho, reasonably so.

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: general romance, adventure, pirates!
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 11/30

Why This Must Be Read: What I like about this fic is that it gives equally credence to both ships, never pitting one against the other, never making one more important than the other either. Another way Elizabeth's life could have gone after the At World's End. It handles the "triangle", even though I've never seen in such defined terms, realistically with and added dose of maturity that comes from seeing that not all things are as simple as life would have you think.

Special Rec: 10/30

Why This Must Be Read:
As much as it is about Elizabeth and Will's relationship and how it endured during the years he was on The Dutchman, it's about how Elizabeth lived her life during those years. Possibly the closest fic I've read to how things probably progress between the time Will left Elizabeth on the beach and when you see her on the cliff.

WIP? No
Special Rec: 8/31

Why This Must Be Read: It's pretty much a requirement in the Elizabeth/Jack 'ship side of the PotC fandom that if you're going to write them, at least one of your fic's has to be post-Dead Man's Chest (and a rehash of that kiss), so it's always a lovely surprise when you come across one that stands out. With clear writing, spot on characterisations, and pitch-perfect dialogue, Glinda shows us a glimpse as to what could have been after the credits rolled, but before the next title card appeared. Just lovely.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: drama, family, character study.
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Post-AWE, Elizabeth blooms into a different person in the absence of Will. While the J/E relationship could in a predictable fashion make her conflicted about herself, one reads this with the impression that for a time, she belongs to no one. An all-around stunning portrayal of Elizabeth as a complicated and divided but headstrong character.

Rating/Warning(s): R / none
Genre: Character Study, Post-Movie
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I loved Anamaria in the first movie, and was very sad and a little frustrated that she wasn't included in any of the sequels. [livejournal.com profile] voleuse writes such a strong characterization of Anamaria in this piece, she's someone who knows what she wants and doesn't take any crap from anyone. Her relationship with Jack is at times seemingly complicated, but in actuality very simple.

Anamaria has an understanding with Captain Jack Sparrow.

He treats her like an equal, and she doesn't run him through with a sword.

It works surprisingly well.

Fic Title: The Ties That Bind Us
Author: [livejournal.com profile] artic_fox
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, AU that takes place after CotBP
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:

I realize that this might be difficult to understand given that this is my SECOND REC for this pairing, but I really don't ship them. Except I totally could, because they are both awesome, and this fic really encompasses all the reasons why. Norrington is just so...trapped by his station, and Elizabth is trapped in an entirely different way by hers, and watching the two of them together just kills me most of the time. Also, I'm a sucker for period costume. And creative ways to remove it.

In the commentary for the first movie, Jack Davenport and Kiera Knightly talk about a scene that didn't make it into the film. In it, Norrington confronts Elizabeth on how she doesn't really want to marry him, and she's all "Yeah, you're kind of right" and he's all "But I'll still be the Best Husband Ever" and she's all "Whatever", and you sort of want to cry for them both. This is kind of that fic, in a roundabout way, and I really appreciate it.

So...basically, you should read this because it's telling a story that I am totally a sucker for, and because it's really well done, and because, GOSH DARN IT, someone should really love the pants of James Norrington. Literally. ;)

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13

Genre:Drama/Romance - post At World's End

WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: There is a motion to this fic that rolls along like the waves of the sea and the changing of the seasons. It twists the heart of the reader and really lets you feel the emotions of the character. [livejournal.com profile] salr323 is one of the best in this fandom and at writing this pairing, if not the absolute best. Everything she has written makes you want Jack and Elizabeth to sail off in the sunset together.

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance? I have no idea. It takes place before the movies, anyway.
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:

I really do not 'ship these two. Except I totally do. Because I am a sucker for period costume and dancing. And dress uniforms. And people who are excruciatingly polite to one another.

Mostly though, this story is a heartbreaking might-have-been that is so in character it hurts and so true to the source it slips right in.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is 27 chapters of pure excitement. It's a re-telling of the last of the PoTC saga, in a way Disney never dreamed of. Definitely an epic tale, and one you can hardly stop reading to go to bed.
